Example text

It does not need a data wire to bring it this information. It delays the program while waiting for a suitable input signal, at which point the flow of the program is resumed. For these reasons, a wait block does not have a data hub. com Chapter 5 Switches and Other Topics 41 42 Chapter 5 • Switches and Other Topics The Switch Block Switches allow the flow of a program to branch along one of two or more routes. The route taken depends on a preset condition. The condition may be the output from a sensor, or the value of a given variable (numeric, logic, or text).

When you create new variable blocks they appear in this menu. The menu is used for selecting the name of a block. For instance, the block in the working area has been designated as Logic 1 by clicking on that name in the list. A Variable Has a Name, a Type, and a Value Variables are able to store one of three different types of data: ■ Numeric Integers (whole numbers). The default value is zero. Numbers can range from −2147483648 to 2147483647. ■ Logic False or True. The default value is False.

There is also a histogram symbol to indicate roughly if the threshold of its comparator is set to low or high. 2 The light sensor’s icon and configuration pane. When first displayed, the block shows only the output terminal for the light intensity signal. 3 The extended data hub has seven single or double data plugs. The double plugs are for inputs, receiving the signal on the left. They also relay it unchanged to the corresponding plugs on the right. The single plugs (right side only) are for outputs from the processing circuits of the block.
